Jenny Beth Martin’s Speech at the Western Conservative Summit

Who here wants elected officials to vote based on principles and convictions, regardless of the consequences?  Regardless of whether they will lose their chairmanships, committee appointments, and other perks of office? Who here is proud of Congressman Ken Buck for standing and voting on principle since he took office in DC in January?

Congress at Lowest Approval Rating in History

Suffering Americans are Fed Up with Congressional Inaction on Spending WASHINGTON, DC – A new poll from Rasmussen Reports found that just nine percent (9%) of Likely Voters think Congress is doing a good or excellent job, tying the lowest rating ever for the second month in a row.  The poll also found that fifty percent (50%) rate congressional performance as poor.  The results come at a time when the majority of Americans say that they have had to make major lifestyle changes in the face of rising gas prices, according to Gallup, but Congress refuses to make meaningful spending cuts. “Americans believe bickering Members of Congress care ...

There was much good news, along with a splash of bad news, in this week’s controversial poll from NBC-Wall Street Journal. Whatever the poll’s methodological shortcomings (which we will leave to the trained professionals to sort out), it’s clear that the first-tier candidates are holding firm as “candidates you could see yourself supporting,” even as second-tier figures Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee and Ben Carson are beginning to surge. As we have been saying in this space for some time, all of the GOP candidates are accretive. They all bring elements of support to what could be a winning coalition against Hillary. A bloodbath may break out ...

Income Inequality, Beltway Style

I had to be in Washington the other day, so I squirreled away an hour to drive by my old house in northern Virginia. My wife Jane and I had bought it when we went to Washington with Reagan. Heady days, those. We were young and idealistic and determined to help The Gipper beat the Soviets in the Cold War, free up the American economy, and put a halt to the spreading bureaucracy of central government. In time, we came around to the idea that two out of three ain’t bad. It was a great house to raise a family – a graceful Cape Cod-style clapboard with a big yard. Shade trees with swings for the kids. A garden for Jane, a library for me. First thing ...
